Tasting Notes

Hennessy VSOP review: Strong bouquet of fruits, some hints of honey and more fruits on the nose. The palate and the finish is dominated by woody hints - that's the cask.

Hennessy Jas (et Cie) - the world famous Cognac producer Hennessy has a history dating back to 1765 when the company was established by Irishman Richard Hennessy. Initially an eaux-de-vie trading business, Hennessy was going to become the most successful Cognac exporter in the world. Today, part of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy Group, the company remains to be amongst the most innovative Cognac companies around, forcing collaborations with new markets such as the Hip Hop scene in the US. Its estate and headquarters are based in the famous town of Cognac in Charente.

At four years old it has hardly had time to catch breath - let alone mature... No worries though, lots of caramel will cover up some of the harshness...

    This is an excellent cognac that I grew up with. My dad used to drink this as well as the XO. Although it might be a little pricey, after I do the math ($50 per 750ml), each 1 oz serving is only about $2.00 which is cheaper than a serving of some "brand name" coffee. This VSOP is flavourful especially towards the end of it, after sitting in the snifter on my palm for more than half an hour, it tastes like sweet raisin juice. Savour it slowly to enjoy the layers of flavours. Cheers!

      excellent value when you consider it's not cookie cutter VS/VSOP/XO range. but depending on where you place this one, you'll either appreciate it or hate it. i think this one has good characteristics of a well blended eau de vie, but too dry and short finish on my palate.

        Excellent choice within price range. Almost impossible to find better eau de vie liquid at this price range. I enjoy Hennessy VSOP as well, but where as Hennessy is clean and dry, this one has deeper aromas and taste that lingers into long finish. definite must for anyone who enjoys superior quality beverage; especially with attractive pricing!

          This is a really good product, one of my favorite VSOPs. Its a little pricey, around $50 a 750 ml bottle. Hennessy Privilege has a dark appearance and more of a dry taste when compared to Remy Martin or Courvoisier VSOP.

            This is a nice cognac, but a tad too expensive for the quality. The first sip is a little astringent. Subsequent sips are smoother and the flavors do linger on the tongue. Once downed, it's satisfying, but not exceptional. But then again, I'm comparing it to my favorite, 7-yerar old Château De Beaulon.
